Ryan Edwards Parents 'Worry Every Day' Son Will Relapse on 'Teen Mom OG'

Ryan Edwards found himself in the slammer again on the latest episode of Teen Mom OG. The reality star violated his parole back in July while MTV cameras were rolling for Season 7 of the show, and his parents opened up about their concerns with producers during the episode, which aired on Monday.

While Ryan's parents Jen and Larry Edwards were saddened to learn of their son's arrest, they were more worried about his potential chances of relapsing. Drug abuse has been a recurring issue for Ryan, who's been a member of the Teen Mom universe since he first appeared on 16 and Pregnant with his ex and son Bentley's mother, Maci Bookout.

On episode 4 of Teen Mom OG, Ryan's parents revealed how concerned they were over their son's drug use. "I mean you worry every day. You don't know if there's gonna be a trigger," Jen told show producers.

Larry added: "In addiction, you just never know. You never know if today's the day."

Following Ryan's recent arrest on the show, Larry said he had the hard job of breaking the news to Bentley that his dad was behind bars. "I knew he knew, but I knew he needed to hear it from us and I told him the truth," Larry said.

"I told him, 'The most important thing is that your daddy's clean.' And he started crying. He gave me a big hug," Larry continued. "I said, 'Buddy, he's going to be OK. He's got us, and he's going to be fine.'"

Ryan was previously arrested in March for violating his probation, which stemmed from former charges of heroin possession. The MTV star went to rehab in relation to drug charges in June 2017.

It was recently revealed Ryan checked into an Alabama rehab facility for the second time in early October. He is expected to spend a few months there, according to Us Weekly.
